I stepped into the Van Heusen store and as usual, it was crowded and I can never find anything in a crowded shop. I start feeling claustrophobic actually. There was 30% off and a buy 2 get 1 free offer which wasn't bad.
Eventually I thought of checking out the Pantaloons cosmetics offers because the clothes section had to be super-crowded. They had 15% off on most of the brands like Colorbar, Maybeline. Faces etc. Almost every brand had some kind of an offer going on. I focused on the first two because had been thinking of buying a long-lasting lip color for a really long time and was swaying between these two brands. Finally these are what I picked. Hopefully they will not disappoint me. I have not even opened the pack. Will definitely review once I use them.
Maybelline Colorama Nail Enamel: Nude - Rs 85 for 8 ml
This is a pinkish nude shade. I generally like Colorama nail enamels because they have a nice range of colors, stay on pretty well and are very easy on the pocket. I don't wear nail polish very often and most of them dry out. So I generally don't go for expensive ones.
Colorbar Extra Durable Lip Color: Candid - Rs 450 for Color and Gloss (4.5 ml each)
This is also a pinkish nude color. It comes with a gloss and is expected to last till you remove it. From the swatches I have a feeling, it will be true. Rest, time will tell :) The review will come soon.
TBS Hemp Lip Protector - Rs 275 for 4.2 gms
Just like I complained of dry and chapped lips, so did my mom. TBS had 3 types of lip protectors sticks besides 9-10 perfumed lip balms. This one is fragrance free and is supposed to be the best for dry, flaky lips.
The Hemp lip protector is enriched with Community Trade beeswax from Zambia to moisturise and soothe even the driest lips. Rest mommy will tell.
Sunset from the South City Mall Roof, Kolkata
And here comes my inspiration! It's the pinkish nude shade of the sky that made me buy those things :)
